$1 Lumber truck

Saw a cute "glass truck" at Dollar General - Matchbox brand - for $1. A little disassembly, a new deck made of styrene, and the lumber yard has a new delivery truck. 

Out of the box truck. 

Drill out 2 rivets to separate the parts. The blue piece was cut in half, keeping the cab half and discarding the "glass panes". The rack was discarded.

Stripped down truck. A U-shaped deck was cut from styrene and glued in place around the center spine.

The lumber load is stacked over the center spine to conceal it.
